With the end-of-season BEST OF lists already cropping up, NBM’s announcement that a third volume of Lewis Trondheim’s diary comic LITTLE NOTHINGS would be dropping in January reminded me that I never did get around to posting that “best of 2008″ list I’d meant to. I did a short review of the second volume in March of this year–losing myself in Trondheim’s world for a little while was a glorious respite from hectic TCAF planning–and mentioned how fortunate I felt we were to get books like these released with some regularity. A third volume less than a year after the second is a treat.
To prime the pump for the release of the new book, NBM has started running excerpts on their blog at http://nbmpub.com/blog/. It’s fitting, as I believe these short strips originally ran on Trondheim’s blog en Français much to the consternation of myself and all of Trondheim’s anglophone readers. Actually, checking his blog right now, the current diary strips appear to be from time spent in Quebec! Maybe I’ll try and puzzle through them with my highschool French after all. :)
